Ramifications of iOS 7 for SU Users
Many SU courses currently rely heavily on iTunes U, and once iOS 7 was released we quickly found that the new iOS breaks the iTunes U links.  What this means for you is that your iPad or iPhone is not going to be able to access your courses' iTunes U information (if you upgraded to iOS 7).

Additionally, Bb Mobile Learn will not work with iOS 7 through Shenandoah U's app.

Keep in mind, this is only going to affect iPads and iPhones.  Your MacBooks will still be able to use iTunes U and Blackboard normally.  

If we discover a workaround for this problem, or a patch is released to fix this issue, we will let you know as soon as possible.
